Have found a set of .46 WP springs out of a 06 640 to replace my .44 WP springs in my 03 640 ADV - which we think are a direct swap.

It's pretty easy, there was one special tool that I needed. In order to separate the top cap from the bottoming bumper, I needed to grind down a wrench so that it was thin enought to slip onto the flats on the bumper's nut. I think it was a 15mm wrench.
